Art Basel is back in Hong Kong—in real life—for the first time since 2019, and despite international economic turmoil, buyers came out in force to the Asian art capital. Although the fair saw a robust 86,000 visitors, the total was still down from 2019. The 177 exhibitors came from all over the world, and dealers reported swift sales at high price points, with the sweet spot falling in the $100,000 to $500,000 range.

Below is a list of works that sold at the fair, converted to USD for ease of reading. It bears repeating that these numbers are provided by the galleries themselves, so take it all with a grain of salt. (As always, we do not list sales without prices.)
